Paul George is a star in this league today. Over the last two years, he has quickly forced his way to stardom. 2013 was his coming out party; he won the Most Improved Player award, was named to the All-Defensive Second team, made the All-NBA Third team and was named an NBA All-Star.

He was the star of the 2013 playoffs as he took on the challenge of dethroning the Heat. Although he came up short, he was able to use that breakout season as springboard for the next. In 2014 he averaged a career high of 22 ppg, proving his ability to score in a variety of ways. Some NBA scouts compare him to Scottie Pippen due to his defensive ability and size.

George is one of the best small forwards in the league due to his versatility. He does a lot of heavy lifting for the Indiana Pacers on both ends. After a disappointing Eastern Conference Finals loss to the Miami Heat again, George has looked to take his game to the next level. He said, “I plan on being a lot more physical this year. I really plan on taking contact and wanting to get contact and finishing through contact. That’s the next step for me.”

If George posts up more next season, he will be able to be more effective and efficient from the field. The 24 year-old guard can only get better as time goes on.
